LCH youth at the Western States Youth GatheringYouth 6–8 grade are invited to be a part of the confirmation program. Confirmation is an intensive time of learning and faith formation for young teens, helping them to begin to articulate their faith better and have a space to ask important questions about life and God. The curriculum for confirmation covers topics of The Bible, Lutheranism, and the Small Catechism where the students will study the Lord’s Prayer, 10 Commandments and the Apostles’ Creed. Students will also be introduced other religions and other Christian traditions as they learn and compare them with their own.

The rite of Confirmation, also called Affirmation of Baptism, generally happens in the fall of the student’s 9th grade year. They will end this time of formal learning by having carefully written a personal statement of faith or “credo”.
